Ghirmay Ghebreslassie, the marathon world champion of Beijing 2015, repeated his previous year's victory at the Grand Prix of Berne.

The 21-year-old Eritrean won an exciting three-in-hand in 49:25 minutes ahead of the Kenyan New Year's Eve Kipchirchir and his resident Swiss countrymen Simon Tesfay, who had already finished third last year.

After being in 10th place in the first third of the season, Langenthaler Adrian Lehmann, together with Tadesse Abraham, was the team-European champion in the half marathon in Amsterdam. He came to Simon Tesfay as the best Swiss up to 6 seconds.

Over 30,000 runners at the start

Women won the four-time winner of the Swiss Women's Run, the Ukrainian Viktoria Pogorielska, after 2015 for the second time at the Grand Prix of Berne. As in the previous year, the mountaineering specialist Martina Straehl ranked second. The Solothurner will take part in the World Cup Marathon in London in August. The Swiss marathon record holder Maja Neuenschwander, who had passed 14th place, was less fortunate.

With 33'618 runners from 104 nations, the organizers of the 36th Grand Prix of Berne announced a participant record at the largest running event in German-speaking Switzerland.
